“A good person out of the store of goodness in his heart produces good, for from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks.” Luke 6:45
Loving with an honest heart is hard to do sometimes. It is easier perhaps to nestle into anger, resentment, bitterness. Sometimes it feels even “right” to feel this way because of the slight, or the perceived unkindness from another where it is easy to nurture the wrongness that one feels has been done. Much harder is it instead to discern, think through or reflect upon and try to see the perspective of the other.
But taking it to God and putting it out onto His doorstep relieves you of this burden. There is a freedom and peace in all that, even though it may not mean that you are wrong, just that you are free. And then you feel lighter having laid the toil at His feet; you can walk with an honest heart, burdened with a searing hurt no longer, and it feels good and right and real. Anger subsides and love rekindles. Bitterness peels away and hope for the other restores. Blessings abound.
Just love, because it just is. I suppose that’s what we mean when we talk about “unconditional love.”
Keep going, be encouraged and love to you all. Dianne
